Summer is FINALLY here.
Well, it has been here for a couple of weeks, but those were busy weeks.
One week we spent in Tokyo, which was GREAT.
The following week we all participated in VBS (all minus Daddy). The big boys were helpers, and the smallest three attendees. James ended up being fully in charge of games, and I got a pile of compliments at the end of the week about what an awesome job he did.
Now, we're done, ready for the NOTHINGNESS of summer.
My big plans include:
1. Catching up on my blogging.
2. Lots of time at the swimming pool.
3. A bit of "mindless" reading.
4. A lot of downtime with the kids - getting to just BE and not having to teach (formally, at least).
Although I confess that I am requiring reading from Jake, Lanie, and Abby all summer. Don't have to worry about James keeping skills up over the summer anymore, and he's already an avid reader. This will probably be the last summer I require it from Jacob. Anyways, here's what they're each reading:
Lanie is working her way through this series and she's completely addicted. She is reading about one book a day or every two days.
